The promotion aggregator helping online fashion shoppers find all the best deals in one place
Founders: Elizabetta Camilleri and Emilio Sanz
Founded: June 2011 (launched November 2012)
SalesGossip is generating serious buzz in the fashion world with a very simple concept; it is a site that aggregates all the latest deals and sample sales from high street fashion retailers, saving shoppers the time and energy of checking with the retailers individually. The site has grown by 30% per month since launch last year, and is about to celebrate reaching its 200,000th member; impressive growth for a service in its first year. Revenue is generated through online retailers and affiliates paying for more prominent exposure on the company’s colourful webpage, and SalesGossip now works with most of the major UK fashion retailers. After trialling the concept as a pilot, the company raised £250,000 angel investment to launch the site in November and is already planning an ambitious worldwide rollout in the next 12 months.
